LEEDS MIDFIELDER: SALAH IS THE TOUGHEST PLAYER I’VE PLAYED AGAINST

Leeds United and England international, Kalvin Philipps, said that Mohamed Salah is the toughest player he has ever come up against.

 

Philipps is an integral part of the Leeds team that earned promotion to the Premier League this season.

 

The Leeds academy graduate is continuing his impressive performances in England’s top division, as his side occupy the 13th position for now this season. A respectable feat considering the league’s competitive nature.

 

 

In their opening league game, the Peacocks visited defending champions Liverpool and suffered a narrow 4-3 defeat, with Salah scoring his first hat-trick of the season so far.

 

 

Philipps said that this game was one of the hardest he’s played, claiming that Salah is his toughest opponent yet.

 

“Mo Salah scored a hat-trick in that game. He’s the best player I’ve played against so far. He was so sharp, he’s just unbelievable,” the 25-year-old told BBC’s Football Daily. 

 

Salah has hit double figures for Liverpool for the fourth consecutive season after scoring a total of 12 goals in all competitions, with 11 of them coming in the Premier League. The Egypt international will hope to compete for his third Golden Boot.
